Give Up the Boat: The Mercyhurst Rowing Program

The team hopes to “give up” the old aluminum coaching boat, and purchase a new, top-tier wakeless boat for the program. This wakeless launch will afford smoother waters so rowers can travel faster and will permit coaches to draw closer to offer instruction. The launch will also include custom decking designed to help coaches and athletes move safely about the boat while swapping rowers or receiving feedback.

 

4thVow_CoverURL4th Vow Retreat

The 4th Vow Retreat is a local service immersion experience named after the unique “4th Vow” of service made by the Sisters of Mercy. The retreat is designed to build on the energy and spiritual hunger that develops during Mercyhurst’s popular Carpe Diem (CD) retreats. Students are immersed in and deeply reflect on service together, while also reflecting on the social justice issues and critical concerns of the Sisters of Mercy. By supporting this project, you are helping off-set the cost each student must pay to attend this retreat.

Portal to the Past: expERIEnce Children’s MuseumExperience_CoverURL

This project will create a fun and educational archaeology-, geology-, and paleontology-themed exhibit in the expERIEnce Children’s Museum in historic downtown Erie, Pennsylvania. Funding will support modifications to an already existing cave structure, as well as regular or semi-regular workshops guided by the Mercyhurst University archaeology and geology departments.

The Mercyhurst University Art Department is constantly researching new, innovative ways to advance education and hands-on opportunities for its students. For that reason, the department seeks to purchase a MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer and integrate 3D printing into art and graphic design education.
